Trans-Pecos Festival Workshops
Here are just a few of the maker workshops available at the festival. Check back often for new additions, and contact Nicki with questions about workshops.
Jungmaven Hemp Tie-Dye Workshop
Designed and produced in Los Angeles, Jungmaven sources high quality hemp and organic cotton to make premium tee shirts, sweatshirts and accessories.
Together in small groups of 15, we will tie-dye hemp shirts and learn about what's happening in the world of industrial hemp and the benefits and challenges. All participants receive two shirts to dye.
Aqui Yoga + Outdoor Voices
Together with Outdoor Voices, Aqui Yoga brings their lighthearted Baja California Sur yoga to Marfa. Everyone welcome. Thick, thin, cranky, hungover, stiff, loose…whatever, man! (Please say that “whatever, man” in an exasperated Lebowksi voice when you read it.) We like our yoga to fit our lives and our lives to fit our yoga. Hence, judgment-free space to get our yoga on, together, under the big top at the best lil’ festival of music and love on the damn planet.
Come join us for some Far West Texas Yoga vibes -- plus all participants will receive a free Outdoor Voices hat!
Note: We'll only have a few yoga mats on hand; participants are encouraged to bring their own.
DIY Bitters & Herbal Tinctures with Kate Payne
Learn the art of crafting your own bitters and other herbal tinctures to support digestion, liver function and health, and help regulate blood sugar. Participants will learn with Kate Payne how to craft herbal tinctures, which are the foundation of Western herbal medicine practice. Attendees will make and take home 2 bottles of personalized tinctures and will sample a range of tinctures and bitters. Bitters help balance the body after a night's indulgence; so join us for this morning workshop to get back on track!
Drawing with Fire
Join illustrator Abi Daniel for an introduction to this meditative drawing technique, as we explore the organic, blooming quality of a burned line on wood. Using wood-burning pens, you will create drawings and patterns on 5”x7” wood panels, and also have the option to embellish a small wooden stash box to hide your treasures in. Add warm fields of color to your masterpieces using washes of watercolor pigment that sink into the woodgrain. Use some provided flash art for inspiration, or bring a drawing or some lettering of your own to work from. Price of the class includes a wood-burning pen of your own to take home and continue exploring the process, along with 5”x7” wood panels, and small round wooden boxes. Pencils, watercolors, brushes, pattern transfers, and wood conditioner will be provided for the duration of the class.
This class will include complimentary snacks from Siete.
